Good evening all


Wow it has been ages since ive used linux but after some recent run ins with windows i decided to make the switch back. I have a couple of problems.

1) Cannot figure out where to get wireless N driver for Wifi card
2) when ever i open a web page that has php(such as trying to put here)doesnt allow me to post it, it simply tries to download the .PHP file.

Any ideas?

Cheers.
Alex

Hi and welcome to LQ Alex, now to give you some advise

Please list your distro and the name and model of your network card.
Start a new thread in 'Linux - networking' or your 'distro' forum with the wireless question with an appropriate title.

Also start a new thread for your php post problem.

This gives your posts the exposure they deserve.


Larry

please see here for more on the wifi situ.. And actually, since the Wifi thread is somewhat underway, let's call this thread the PHP one

If the OP could rename this thread something about the PHP problem, and continue the Wifi chat on the other thread, that'd be handy.

Thanks!
Sasha

Hey All,

I am using Ubuntu netbook remix. I think the php error has to do with the web browser or maybe my network connection. when i get around to it I think i am going to try plugging my computer into the router

Hi Alex,


If pluggin the computer to the router helps you , kindly upgrade the firmware of the router and also fiddle with the recommended wifi channel of your region , that will make a huge difference.

Let us know about general internet performance like streaming and download experience

thanks.
